Awww Maggie, shame not to meet you but I quite understand about getting the hot water fixed - we'll have some summer expeditions too

I've got a number for Panda

As long as we can get there we'll be fine Nut - the house has got lots of spare bedrooms and a cafeteria - they can put us up for the duration

Hello folks!    Back from tennis - pea soup and toast eaten - now I'll flollop for a few minutes and see what you lot've been up to, then I'll have a shower then make some Snake & Pigmy pies.

If only politicians of all parties would be honest with the electorate about how much it would cost to have the public services we want - instead they try to pretend that we can have it all without paying for it, then blame the medics, social workers and teachers when they can't work 24/7 365 days a year

  How will mowing spread them?  True the bulbs will multiply as with most bulbs, but if the tops are mowed thus preventing seed development then the seeds won't spread, and continual repeated mowing stopping the leaves from growing to any size will weaken the bulbs.

It worked for Ma - they stayed there, but they didn't get any worse.

Jimmy, he probably used DDT too, just as my mother and grandmother did in their gardens - that doesn't mean we should.

As for cats, Steve the Gardening Vet wrote  ...

Steve J wrote (see)

It seems, like anti-freeze, to be both palatable and toxic to cats.

And while aviary birds may not be adversely affected, the important micro-organisms in our soil are damaged by it's use.

However, as it's not illegal to use it my post contains the information bulkerb asked for, as well as my views on its use. 

In this household it's used to disinfect drains - and that's all.

I'd just keep mowing the lawn - it won't get rid of it but it'll keep it under control - lovely oniony smell while you're mowing of course.

Lyn ((hugs))

Bushman   Good to see you - a bit hectic here today (in a retired sort of way) - washing in the machine and I'm off to tennis, leaving OH to hang it out on the line if the sun stays out. 

Have a good drive GWRS
